The Rules of Bourbon

Call yourself a Bourbon expert? You will be after you learn all of our rules.


You call yourself a Bourbon expert. You live by the truism that all Bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskeys are Bourbons. You're even aware of the fact that Bourbon has to be from the United States, though not necessarily Kentucky (trick question), to be considered a Bourbon.


But are you familiar with the laws that must be maintained in order for a whiskey to be called Bourbon? In case you're in need of a refresher course, Steve Cole, The Whiskey Professor for Knob Creek, Basil Hayden's Booker's and Baker's enumerates all you need to know.
